This week on The Football Manager Football Show we’re wrapping up the pre-season.
We get to do this because the season is starting early – the end of July in fact – because we’ll be off to the World Cup in November to see what’s happening in Qatar.
With loads of football to play between now and then we’re tackling a few things this week
- Balancing the books by cutting transfer budgets in half
- Low ball transfer offers
- Summer signings
- Clearing out the dead weight and bloated summer squads
- Wolves pre-season tour of Portugal
- Leicester’s pre-season tour of France and trying to sign a goalkeeper
- Kasper Schmeichel’s testimonial as some familiar faces return to play Leeds
- The look of the first month of Premier League football
- and more besides
Oh, and of course we’ll start with a very quick throwback to Shane’s midweek heart-break as Manchester United fluffed their lines in the Europa League Final.
We’re into season three of #FMFShow. Like what you hear? Leave a 5* review on Apple Podcasts or drop us a line – tweet us any time @scorelinesport, @kenmc056 or @sirsok1 – and let us know what you’re enjoying.
